I would like to thank Fractal for supplying the review sample.
Fractal Design is best known for the Define series of cases, which is currently in its seventh generation. While Fractal Design is offering other lines, like the Meshify or Vector, those all are derivatives of the Define core frame. In recent years, their only unique chassis was the Era ITX enclosure. With the launch of the Fractal Design Torrent we are reviewing here, the company is finally offering another brand-new case body with its own unique tooling, all-new design, and a fresh take on what an internal layout for a chassis could look like. The Torrent, as the name implies, is decked out with fans out of the box and meant to be utilized with large air coolers first and foremost, but does offer the ability for plenty of liquid cooling, so let's dive right in.
